What is the main purpose of your role? Do you have any key specialisms?

My main purpose is to be a Project Manager and Surveyor for ecological phases of developments. I am also part of the Social team (reviewing ecological social content for our socials), Sales team (meeting with clients and stakeholders, encouraging others to engage with their clients and discussing how to get the sales strategy incorporated into the work of the wider team) and Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) team. I am beginning to train on River MoRPh surveys so I can fully complete BNG assessments for the company.

What drives you? What are your values? Do you support any initiatives outside of TG?

Honesty, Kindness and Supporting Others are my personal values. In keeping with this I go into local schools (I have a lot of teacher friends) and do presentations on what careers you can have with Biology degrees outside of medicine. I didn’t know any of this until I had gone to university already and definitely would have been quicker at getting into this career if I had known at 15/16.

What are your interests? Hobbies? Fun facts?

I love going to concerts and festivals, this year is Glastonbury so very excited for this one. Music wise I am into everything and know the words to most songs… even if I am tone deaf, if I put my music on shuffle it will go from country to drum and bass to 70s disco. I read way too much fantasy for me to be able to give recommendations to my friends who aren’t into it even though I am known as the reader of the group. I also love going on what I call hikes but are most likely just slightly longer walks to most people, even better when they are in foreign countries, my favorite is the States.

I am the Team and Operations Lead for the South West Ecology Team covering the Cotswolds, Bristol and Exeter. I am responsible for team management, financial analysis and reporting and I also act as Project Director on numerous projects across a range of sectors, supporting more junior staff across the business in their role as Project Managers. I am a competent and proficient ecologist with over 15 years of experience in the environmental sector and whilst I do not have a specialism as such, I excel at project management and organisation, and I also have a soft spot for great crested newts!

What Drives you? What are your values? Do you support any initiatives outside TG?

I am driven by wanting to do what is right for our environment and to make the world a better place for my children. I would love my little boys to grow up into a flourishing natural environment without all the worries that we have today, and I believe that we all have a part to play to make this a reality. I hope that I am contributing to this ideal through both my work and by bringing my children up to understand how important the natural environment is and how it is essential to understand, protect and appreciate it. Outside of TG, I volunteer with the Gloucestershire Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership – their aim is to gather and understand feedback and experiences from women, birthing people and their families who are currently or have recently used maternity, neonatal and health visiting services in Gloucestershire, something that is close to my heart having had two babies in Gloucestershire in the last four years.

What are your interests? Hobbies? Fun facts?

I love hiking, swimming, running and reading a good book (Terry Pratchett is my absolute favourite – I have read every book at least five times!); however, these all take a backseat to raising my two gorgeous little boys at the moment so you will often find me scrabbling round on the floor helping to build boats and submarines out of megablocks or being chased round the dining room table by my eldest (aka Spiderman!)

I love playing in the garden and DIY and I’m always happy when I’m making a mess.

In the winter I love watching the rugby, I’m from Dublin originally and have been an Ireland fan since I was a little girl. In the summers I do historic re-enactment, camping with my friends and sometimes visiting Europe for events there. Every four years I go to an event in Germany so I’ve been learning German. I love 70s rock, sci fi and action movies but am especially partial to Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
